Two times WWE Hall of Famer Booker T who is a former five times WCW World Heavyweight champion and a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion recently gave advice to the co owner of all Elite Wrestling Tony Khan about producing more good shows. Booker T thinks he should focus on producing more good shows.
The All Elite Wrestling is the biggest competition of WWE right now. WWE has been the biggest stage of professional wrestling for so many years. A lot of promotions have tried to compete with them but ultimately failed. Finally it looks like they are going to get a legit competition. The last time WWE faced a good competition was back in the late 90s when WCW was in existence. But ultimately it failed and Vince McMahon, the owner of WWE ended up buying WCW.
Booker T Thinks Tony Khan Should Concentrate On Producing Good Shows
One year after the death of WCW, a new promotion was founded with the help of former WWE and WCW star Jeff Jarrett. The promotion what’s the famous as TNA Wrestling. At a point It looked like they are going to give a good competition to WWE. But once again WWE was able to surpass their competition. This time they did not buy their competition, just outsmarted them. The promotion is still in existence under the name of Impact Wrestling. But unfortunately it is not as good as it used to be previously.
Impact Wrestling might not be a competition of WWE right now, but there is a promotion which is showing some prospect and it looks like they might beat WWE at a point. Here we are talking about AEW who has recently produced an amazing pay per view event; All Out. The event is being compared to Wrestlemania X-Seven which is vastly accepted as the best pay per view event in the history of professional wrestling. All Out has shown AEW is going to give headache to WWE for sure.
Booker T who is a former five times WCW World Heavyweight champion and a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion on a on a recent episode of his Hall of Fame podcast gave an advice to the co owner of all Elite Wrestling Tony Khan about producing more good shows. He said;
“I’m of the sentiment that Tony Khan is doing a lot of talking about nothing. Go out and produce a good show. At the end of the day, we’ll know who won if that’s what we’re looking for, if that’s your goal post, if that’s where you’re trying to score in. But all of this talk about what you’re doing, this and that, back and forth, I swear man, it sounds like a little school girl saying how pretty she is over the other girls on the schoolyard.
“I could be wrong, but to me, that’s what it sounds like. It doesn’t sound like a boss. It doesn’t sound like a real boss move to be talking about something as small as that. I remember back in the day when WCW and WWE, it was head to head going down, that right there was a real war fighting for numbers. At one point, WCW took that rating war and ran with it for 83 weeks. That’s a long, damn time to say, ‘We’re winning.’
“But what happened after 83 weeks? The ball shifted and we never got the momentum back. You know why? Because there was a lot of talking going on, and a lot of guys not working keeping their eyes on the prize. My thing is, if Tony Khan is smart, and I really think the guy really is smart, he would definitely stop thinking about the fans on social media as opposed to how long can we run this thing? How big can we make this?”
